Eating & Drinking, Chicago: 23 reviews and 21 photos

  Is the glass half full of half empty?
by jo104

I was pleasently suprised that in Chicago they always serve water with a meal. In fact in some restaurants it felt like there was a person employed just to keep your glass topped up. My findings were obviously you drink less alcohol, feel better in the morning and on the downside visit the restroom more often!

The tap water is perfectly acceptable in taste & whats more it is less harmfull to the enviroment then ordering bottled water.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars

      Yes....one transport friend said the smell from the plastic bottles he was delivering to a Spring water business made him vow never to buy that bottled water again
